Duration: 8 Days
One of the most relaxed and less strenuous treks in the Annapurna Region, the Jomson Muktinath trip is ideal for those looking to enjoy the region without the stress and hurry of more difficult packages. As the area lies in the rain shadow area of the Annapurna’s, it can be completed any time of year with little chance of poor conditions and visibility. A great way to combine the beauty of the Himalayas with the spirituality offered by the pilgrimage to Muktinath while passing panoramic mountain views and the worlds deepest gorge.
